PITTSBURGH – The University of Pittsburgh baseball team’s regular season finale at Louisville will be televised to a national audience on ESPNU, the network announced earlier this week. The contest, which will air live from Jim Patterson Stadium beginning at noon ET on May 18, marks the Panthers’ final regular season game in the Big East.
"This is a great opportunity for our program to be on ESPNU,” said head coach Joe Jordano. “We are anxious to begin our season and we are anticipating the final game of the regular season against Louisville will be a game of significance. We look forward to it."
The Panthers, who begin their third season at the state-of-the-art Cost Field at the Petersen Sports Complex this spring, are one of three teams to advance to the past four Big East Championships. Since 2000, the Panthers have been one of the premier programs in the Northeast winning over 400 games and producing 12 All-Americans, 50 All-Big East honorees and seeing 51 players sign professional contracts.
Pitt opens its 2013 campaign on Friday, Feb. 15, when it travels to Wichita, Kan., to meet up with perennial power Wichita State in a three game series.
